Letters to Lizzy - A Nest Box Craze
You have mentioned that you and your entire flock of girls prefer ONE certain nest box.
Lizzy, PLEASE tell us what is so special about that one particular nest box!
Alice in Wonderland
Most hens, when choosing a place to pop out an egg, will be looking for that special spot - the HOT SEAT, if you will - and when they notice another hen has picked THE perfect nest, of course the next hen will want it TOO! Kind of like you HUMANS - always wanting what the other one has! And, if we're lucky, the box will be warm and cozy, already burrowed into the shape of a hen's body, and ready to accept another egg! What could be more EGG-citing?!?
